Get $50 Back When You Spend $200 With Marriott

Log into your American Express account and scroll down, there’s a new ‘Amex Offer’ that appears to be widely available that many cardmembers can opt into by adding it to the card account of their choosing: $50 back when you spend $200 or more with Marriott by September 21.

When you add the offer, and then use the card you’ve added it to paying for Marriott folio charges, you’ll receive a $50 statement credit though it may take up to 90 days from the end of the promotion period for the statement credit to post.

Terms and Conditions:

Enrollment limited. Must first add offer to Card and then use same Card to redeem. Only U.S.-issued American Express® Cards are eligible. Limit 1 enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels. Your enrollment of an eligible American Express Card for this offer extends only to that Card.

Offer valid only at participating Marriott Bonvoy™ properties in the U.S. and U.S. territories, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Reservations must be made online at, via the Marriott Bonvoy™ App or by calling 1-888-236-2427. Excludes Marriott Vacation Club®, Design Hotels™, Protea Hotels®, Marriott Executive Apartments®, Homes & Villas by Marriott International and Vistana Signature Experiences™. Excludes gift card purchases.

Not valid for online retail purchases, hotel amenities or purchases of Marriott Bonvoy™ points. Offer only valid on room rate and room charges. Offer not valid for lodging stays that are paid for before the promotion start date or after the promotion end date. Qualifying purchase means a purchase at a participating Marriott property made during the offer period with your enrolled American Express Card and which is in amount totaling at least $200 USD as posted to your account, following conversion from a foreign currency, if applicable, in accordance with your Card Member Agreement.

Offer is non-transferable. Limit of 1 statement credit per Card Member. The enrolled Card account must not be cancelled or past due to receive statement credit. Any benefit earned from this offer is in addition to the rewards (i.e. Membership Rewards or cash back) earned as part of your existing Card benefits, but your ability to earn spend-based rewards for the purchase will be based on the amount after any statement credit or other discount is applied.

Statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 90 days after 9/21/2020, provided that American Express receives information from the merchant about your qualifying purchase. Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying purchase is cancelled. If American Express does not receive information that identifies your transaction as qualifying for the offer, you will not receive the statement credit. For example, your transaction will not qualify if it is not made directly with the merchant. In addition, in most cases, you may not receive the statement credit if your transaction is made with an electronic wallet or through a third party or if the merchant uses a mobile or wireless card reader to process it. By adding an offer to a Card, you agree that American Express may send you communications about the offer. POID: GFGB:0001

  1. hey any miles/points related news to get you to stop posting about flight attendants’ feet I APPRECIATE

  2. Thanks for sharing my H/T Gary. I get so damn frustrated with Amex Offers though that they’re never actually on the co-branded card you want it on. Is it too much to ask to have a Marriott offer on either of my 2 Marriott cards? Or Delta on a Delta card, etc. Such a waste to put this on a Platinum, it eats into the full $50 value some by missing out on maybe $10-20 worth of points.

  3. Got it on my Amex Platinum. Thanks for the heads up — I’m staying at a Marriott next week.

    Didn’t show up on my Delta Amex.

  4. If I buy a Marriott GC at the front desk of a Marriott hotel, will AMEX be able to tell how I spent the money? I’d love to get around the GC exclusion.

  5. Interesting. On my Amex PLT, but not my Bonvoy Brilliant. I have stacked up 35K and 50K awards so may not spend $200 by then, but registered anyway, just in case.
